To the comment that global warming is a natural event I would first argue that well over 95% of climatologists (scientists with credentials in the field) agree that the warming we are experiencing is in great part a result of human activity and not cyclical solar/earth relationships. Second, even if it were a "natural" event, the consequences remain the same. We must prepare to act in ways that defend the global population's safety that is threatened by the change. Please note the Department of Defense contains studies that affirm my point. (Also note the choice of the AF Acadamy to utilize solar power) Global Warming is the greatest threat to national security. If we want to drive the defense budget by fear of threats then lets at least get the real threats clear and design a defense strategy capable of addressing those threats.
